AVOID UNNECESSARY MEDICAL INTERVENTION DURING PREGNANCY AND BIRTH


BIRTH WAS NEVER INTENDED TO BE A TECHNOLOGICAL PROCEDURE. MEDICAL INTERFERENCE IS HARMING OUR CHILDREN, OUR FAMILIES, AND OUR SPECIES!

"Babies whose mothers are induced before the baby is 39 weeks have a higher likelihood of death, being admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), feeding disorders, and life-long health problems, according to the journal. You can protect yourself and your baby by not scheduling a delivery before 39 weeks without a sound medical reason and researching hospitals’ early induction rates."
